I personally hate it and won't be stopping by...

Just been thinking and wondered if anyone knew why digital radio infrastructure was created. Couldn't they have just used radios that took the audio from DTT transmitters?

The 405 line TV audio was...

When gay men have alcohol it does seem to be the case that they relax and allow their more effeminate sides to come out.

Is Kav getting more camp?

I've thought this for a while, but having just watched him whilst drunk he's fair fluttering his eye lashes, crossing his legs and talking higher :D
